Access Control Installation, Maintenance & Repair Systems Bishop Cleeve
Access control systems offer enhanced security to businesses, homes or premises by offering adaptable control over who is allowed access. They are among one of the most used security systems for businesses now and there are various types of systems readily available to meet your requirements.
Access control can be employed on doors, gates, lifts, barriers or any entry or exit points to control who enters and leaves a property. They are a solution to protect people inside a property, a specific room or area in a property, belongings and systems in addition to the property itself. They make it possible for you to keep track of and control who is entering and leaving at any time.
An access control system not only provides security of who is entering a property or site but also permits simple entry with a pin code or swipe access card whichever option suits your business or property most.
Types Of Access Control Door Systems
There are various types of Access Control Door Systems and each one works somewhat differently. Elite Fire & Security are experts in the types available and will be able to strongly recommend the best system for your property, business, needs and spending plan.
Keypad Entry Access Control Systems
Key Fob Entry Access Control Systems
Card Entry Access Control Systems
Fingerprint Entry Access Control Systems
Retina Entry Access Control Systems
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access Control Systems
Keypad Entry Access – This form of access control system utilises a keypad with a numeric keypad for entering and exiting. Businesses and homeowners can change the numeric code at any time if necessary.
Key Fob Entry Access – This is when somebody who has been given permission to access a property or an area makes use of a wireless remote control key fob to open the entry point, similar to a car key fob. The fob is battery operated.
Card Entry Access – Access to an access point or door is controlled by a keycard that contains a security token. An installed keycard reader opens and closes the door when the card is touched against the reader or swiped through a swipe reader.
Fingerprint Entry Access – Biometric (fingerprint and retina) entry access control systems are growing in popularity because they are considered more secure as a result of the fact that the entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to any individual who isn’t authorised. A fingerprint entry access control system allows authorised individuals to gain access easily whilst helping prevent unauthorised individuals from doing so.
Retina Entry Access – Biometric (retina and fingerprint) entry access control systems are an increasing market with lots of companies using them because again they are seen as more secure access systems. The entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to anyone who isn’t authorised and only allows access to authorised individuals.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access – Access control systems that use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) allow entry to authorised people. Radio waves are transmitted by the RFID control reader, and radio waves are sent out by the RFID tags (cards/fobs). When the card is within range, the antenna within it captures the waves and broadcasts a notification that contains a unique number from the chip, which enables access.
Access control door systems all have the same purpose of allowing or denying entry or exit but they all do so in different ways. You can have an access control door system in a business property or home, or if you have land that is protected by secure fencing and gates it will allow you to manage who enters and exits. The systems can be designed and fitted to doors, gates, barriers, turnstiles and a lot more.
Access Control System Benefits

They prohibit entry to those who are not authorised
You can identify who has entered and when (log of entry/exit)
They can limit areas within a building or property quickly and remotely
They are difficult to break into and gain entry without authorisation

The system you choose will certainly depend upon your property and security requirements. Elite Fire & Security will conduct a complete security assessment of your site and become familiar with your requirements and afterwards advise you of the very best solution for you and your finances.

Remote Monitoring and Domestic Intruder Alarms – These alarm systems can be arranged so that a call centre monitors your premises 24 hours a day. A signalling system will almost instantly contact your call centre in the case that the alarm system is set off.

- Keyholder – when the alarm is set off, the alarm receiving centre will contact your nominated keyholders.
- Text Alert – when the alarm is set off, a text is sent to inform your appointed contacts of an intrusion
- Police Monitoring – the police will be advised through the alarm receiving centre if your alarm is set off

Alarm systems like these are excellent if you have numerous entry points since the system will inform you regarding which sensors, cameras, beams and motions have been disturbed.
An Audible Intruder Alarm – a loud alarm and flashing strobe lights to draw attention. Intruders will be alerted to such systems, however, they are predominately unmonitored key holders and the police will not be notified except if a member of the public calls to report a disturbance. Consequently, they are not always the most suitable option for commercial properties as they rely upon neighbours or passers-by noticing and reporting the disturbance as well as some experienced burglars being undaunted by the alarm and flashing lights.
